The beer Cuvée des Jacobins is unblended old lambic, aged for at least 18 months in (French) oak barrels from the cognac region. These oak barrels are called ’Foeders’ in Dutch. It has a robust character but is beautiful and sophisticated with a full body and overtones of vanilla, dried cherry, stone fruit and cocoa. It is a complex, beautiful sour beer.

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2012
Medium tan head. Clear brown body. Vinous wooden red berries aroma with yoghurty notes. Sweet-acidic wooden wild berry taste with yoghurty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel with astringent sting. Dry-sweet-acidic wild berries aftertaste with wooden yoghurty notes. A good one. Clean and highly drinkable, but still subtle. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Triaden Lørenskog.)

Gr0ve (2156) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2012
330 ml bottle. Dark reddish brown colour. Crystal clear. Medium-sized white head initially, but it falls down quickly. Nice sweet vinegary aroma with dried fruit and a little funk. Nice acidic flavours with a good dose of candy-like flavours. Red berries, vanilla og cherries. A little too sweet and slightly artificial, but overall a really nice Flemish red.

Pours dark reddish brown with a tiny off white head. Aromas of sour cherries, barnyard and a little caramel. Tons of energy on the palate - a cascade of sour berries, barnyard funk and those sour coke bottle candies that the kiddies like. Also lots of grapey, winey flavours. A delicious sour- I’ll be having this one again.

superspak (2840) - Michigan, USA - NOV 1, 2012
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, 04 stamped on the back? Pours fairly crystal clear deep red color with a nice 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of huge tart cherry, apple, raspberry, red wine vinegar, hay, grass, oak, earth, funk, leather, herbal, and light yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity. Taste of huge tart cherry, apple, raspberry, hay, grass, pear, earth, light vinegar, pepper, red wine, oak, funk, and yeast spiciness. Big fruity and acidic sourness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart fruits, hay, grass, pepper, earth, red wine, funk, oak, and light yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of flavors; even with the big acidity, there is still a good malt backbone making this easy to sip; no cloying flavors at all on the finish other than acidity. Medium carbonation and body; with a slick and acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly fantastic Flanders red! Great flavor complexity and balance; and quite smooth to sip on despite acidity. I will definitely be getting some more of this to have on hand, incredible.

Beautiful taste, dark, ruby color. Thirst-quenching yet nuanced and delicious. Subtly sweet and sufficiently tart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brouwerij (942) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 Poured into snifter. Pours an opaque ruby brown with a finger of tan head that disperses quickly. Decent lacing. Aroma is sour, cherries and grapes. Flavors of cherries, plums and grapes with a nice tartness that lingers. Moderate to strong carbonation and light body give it a refreshing mouthfeel. Overall, a delicious flemish sour.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle:   Deep ruby, moderate tannish head, foamy, little lacing.   Oakish and immature cherries on the nose, tart yet somewhat sweet.   Sweet and tart on the tongue, seems like a mix of young and old cherries, on oak, with a dry backside.   Very simple, but enjoyable.   Seems a little artificial in its sweetness tho.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Very dry and tart finish.   Good, but simple.
